ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 54: The Origins of X-Men’s Emma Frost

Emma Frost is arguably one of the most polarizing female characters in X-Men for men and women alike. After reading the 18 issues that make up the origin story — EMMA FROST by Karl Bollers, as well as FIRESTAR, GENERATION X, and UNCANNY X-MEN, we found that not everybody thoroughly enjoys her for the same reasons. The CEO of ComicsVerse, Justin Gilbert Alba, is joined by fantastic editor and contributor Jamie Rice, along with Kay Honda, Malia Knight, Brian Delpozo, and Nolan Bensen for her character analysis based on her origin story. We have an in-depth discussion that delves into her history, characterization and why she allows — and seemingly embraces — the heavily sexualized permutation of her identity. I, personally, don’t believe it can just be dismissed as “daddy-issues,” although her tenuous relationship with her father contributes to why she presents herself as the icy White Queen that can play both villainess and heroine. In fact, it is arguable that she can fulfill any role that a person desires. Although her diamond shape-shifting ability is not discussed in the origin story, it is clear that the power and control she gains over her mutation very cleverly reflect her defense mechanisms in emotional situations. She keeps what’s “hers” deep inside, while reflecting what people want of her off her appearance.

LISTEN: Want more Emma Frost? We discussed the beginning of her relationship with Cyclops at length in Grant Morrison’s NEW X-MEN podcast.

We also use excerpts from Susan Batson’s Truth: Personas, Needs, and Flaws in The Art of Building Actors and Creating Characters as a reference when analyzing Emma. These excerpts including discussing the three specific facets of her identity: The “Public Persona”(the identity she presents to everyone around her), the “Need” (the identity most authentic to the self but most vulnerable to the world), and the “Tragic Flaw” (the result of the conflict between the “Public Persona” and the “Need”).

Despite the various silly digressions, we go into analyzing her familial relationships, but also how her interactions with peers and other authority figures shape her attitudes toward trust, intimacy, and control. As a personal favorite of Justin’s, as well as various other contributors, Emma Frost is given a shot in this podcast to prove that there’s a true and personable identity and reasoning beneath all the skin, legs, and breasts. It’s easy enough to discount a female character in any medium as being a sexual play-thing at the mercy of the men around her. Fortunately, Emma is not at all such a submissive character, unless that’s what she desires at the time.

A Podcast with Ross and Nick #134

A Podcast with Ross and Nick

Listen to A Podcast with Ross and Nick #134 right now!

Ross Campbell and Nick Marino kick things off with some brief conversation about The Hollywood Complex. After that, Nick confesses his addiction to claw machines and Ross talks about buying clothes online.

Then it’s time for comics conversation!!! First up is New X-Men and Nick’s theory that Emma Frost is Grant Morrison’s secret cipher. Then Ross and Nick try to make sense out of Xorn actually being Magneto… which almost works except if Xorn is Magneto then how did he bring this bird back to life???

After some Iron Man and Sleepwalker conversation, things turn towards Ross’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan comic and April’s perm. And… why did Ross and Nick NOT go to see The Dark Knight Rises?

There’s also some movie conversation including Dragon Eyes, Judge Dredd, Chronicle, Avengers, Sleepaway Camp, James Hong, and the Then She Found Mecast. Plus, the same puppeteer who performs as Elmo was also Splinter!

Finally, after the end theme we announce the return of EXTREME (Epic X-Men TV Review Endurance Marathon Extravaganza)!!!

Next episode, we’re picking up right where we left off with X-Men: The Animated Series episodes #4243 (s3 e13-14 on Netflix), which is the end of the Dark Phoenix Saga.

**this is the 504th AudioShocker podcast**
